Rammstein’s Richard Kruspe says that the band are planning to release five music videos from their upcoming studio album.
The long-awaited follow-up to 2009’s Liebe ist für alle da is expected to launch this spring, with Kruspe telling Consequence Of Sound last month that they were finishing the mixes, and also explained the reasons behind the delay in releasing new material (opens in new tab).
Now the guitarist has checked in with Kerrang (opens in new tab) to give a bit more detail on the as-yet-untitled record’s progress.
He says: “We flew to Los Angeles to mix the record with Rich Costey, who has worked with Muse and a bunch of other big bands.
“It looks like we will have five music videos coming out this time too. I feel really happy with the album, although a few things might still change.”
He says: “It’s going to be this really big and super-intense show. It’s so funny – during this recording process we’ve been six guys in a band, arguing about each tiny fucking snare hit.
“That was also such an intense experience. You name it, everything you could argue about we have. But now that it’s done, I’m very proud of what we’ve achieved. And that intensity is what made our songs even better.”
